Look, Playmaker, We Believe You
Deadspin, with some help from The Smoking Gun, just posted an item in which it breaks down Michael Irvin's Monday-evening almost-carjacking and finds his story, well, a bit sketchy. As in: "Irvin didn't report the incident until the following day, more than 24 hours after Monday's supposed confrontation. And he reported it by flagging down a police car. What?" A full postmortem follows. Then again, this just-posted interview with Bruce Campbell could explain everything: Perhaps The Playmaker was just rehearsing for his upcoming guest appearance on USA Network's Burn Notice.
